Forum: etree Subject: Re: bandwidth sharing tools?

Etree01 uses BitTorrent on all of its contents, so if you install it and leave it running for a day after you finishing downloading a show, some of your bandwidth will help other folks that want that show.

Etree04 has all of its contents mirrored on I2, which is independent of the bandwidth cap here, and many folks were getting great speed from that mirror.

I believe that etree03 uses Onion Networks.

If you search to older forum posts, you'll find some more info on these.

Forum: etree Subject: Re: bandwidth sharing tools? --- Onion Networks

How are people liking the Onion networks stuff? It's very easy for us to set up and can push it out to the other servers if users are finding it beneficial. Let's have some discussion. The ON folks have been very good at working with us, so let's try to get as much feedback for them as possible.

It only gets better :)

It looks like the Onion Networks software is saving all of the .shn files in two locations - the first is where I tell it to, and the second is a .cache file somewhere in my temp directories. They haven't gone away yet, and they're doubling the size of my .shn library. I understand these are probably for the p2p features, but I don't like that facet...

Any info about them? I couldn't find anything at Onion Network's website.
